After a lot of debate that surfaced in around the 1970’s, questioning an egg’s nutritional contributions and how safe it is for consumption, it had been decided later that the dietary cholesterol in eggs are only harmful when eaten in large quantities. The eggs thus came clean and since then doctors and nutritionists have always recommended every patient of theirs to eat at least one egg per day, but of course it should come from a good farm, like the Norco Ranch Eggs from Fontana.
There can be no doubt in the quality of the eggs of this farm as it has been serving the best quality eggs to the residents of Southern California for more than 40 years. The eggs got from these farms are packed with nutrients and can be consumed by people of all ages.
Eggs have in a way carved a niche for themselves in today’s world; not only are they one of the most inexpensive ways to add the essential nutrients to one’s diet, but also they are perhaps the most versatile food available. Eggs can be had raw, eaten boiled, poached, baked, scrambled or made into an omelette. There are innumerable ways to cook an egg and it hardly takes any time to cook.
The nutritional benefits of eggs, such as Norco Ranch Eggs need to be recognized and taken full advantage of by everyone. The two parts of an egg – the white and the yolk, have different set of nutrients, all of which are vital for existence. The yolk or the yellow part is known to be packed with cholesterol, vitamins, saturated fats, and minerals. The vitamins present in this part are A,D, B6 and B12; Iron is also found in the yolk. The yolk is said to have an average of 55 calories.
Most people say that eggs are a rich source of protein, but not many are aware that it is the white part of an egg that contains large amounts of protein in it. This part contains a meager 17 calories and no fat at all. This is the reason, often nutritionists and dieticians have suggested the eating of only the white part of an egg to obese patients. The calorie count is kept under control for those consuming only the egg whites. The other nutrients available in the white part of an egg include selenium, magnesium, calcium, folate, phosphorus and potassium. All of these are very important in the maintenance of the health of an individual.

It has further been proved that eating eggs, especially the white helps in removal of tiredness and fatigue, along with the added benefit of enhancing the immunity system of the body.
